The Cecil Porterfields
by Cecil and Elma Porterfield

Cecil and Elma came with their families, the Porterfields to the Lac Vert district and the McGillivrays to the Home School district. Cecil was born in Star City and came as an infant to Lac Vert. Elma was 7 years old when she came with her parents.

They were married in 1936 had three children. Barbara, who married Don Wallace and now lives east of Naicam and Lorne married Valerie McFarlane. Lorne and Valerie moved back from Calgary in 1972 and took over the family farm east of Lac Vert. One daughter died in infancy. We have four grandchildren, Dolores and Lyle Wallace and Joanne and Janice Porterfield.

Most of us who remember growing up in the thirties. Although money was scarce, people were on the same level and could have a good time at house parties, picnics, etc. Neighbors seemed help each other more readily and never thought of charging each other.

When we were first married we did not own a car or radio. Cecil cut a carload of cordwood to buy our first radio, which needless to say, we enjoyed very much.

In January, 1943 the weather was extremely cold and we lost our home by fire. It's times like this when you realize how important friends and neighbors really are. The next summer we rebuild our present home.

Neighbors were plentiful as there was someone living on nearly every quarter section and a number of young people of the district.

Another year we will remember was 1959 when were completely hailed out.

And since we're retired we can take life a little easier and do some traveling. We still enjoy living on the farm where we have lived for all for married lives.

Dear Bill:
I have done a bit of exploring in your Genealogy page and have found a few familiar names -- names which have brought back memories.

1) I knew Eldridge Cotterill slightly but knew other members of his family much better. His youngest brother, Clare, was a very good baseball pitcher and a very fine fellow about seven or eight years older that I. He was killed in a hunting accident in about 1936 - shot accidentally by his hunting companion Asa Fennel. His funeral service was held in the church and at the time booked for his wedding.

LIFE HISTORY OF THE FAMILY OF CARL MCGILLIVRAY
Submitted by Yvonne McGillivray (pages 449-450)

Carl’s parents, Dan and Elizabeth McGillvray, came from Ontario in the early days and settled in the Neepawa, Manitoba district where the farmed many years before coming to the Melfort District. The lived in the Melfort District from 1920 to 1923 when they took homesteads in the Lac Vert district. Carl had five sisters and one brother. The brother is Earle of Lac Vert. The sisters are Mrs. Howard Nichol (known as Dot) of Prince Albert, Mrs. Vern Thorpe (Ida) of Vancouver, British Columbia, Mrs. Mary Coterill of Resource, Mrs. Lillian Abernethy of Melfort and Mrs. Cecil Porterfield (Elma) of Lac Vert.

Carl bought the farm of Matt and John Gross, and his parents lived there for a few years, until Carl married Yvonne Gaudreau of Lac Vert in 1930. The resided 4 mi. east and 1 mi. south of Lac Vert.

In the early days we had no power or running water. Our means of transportation was horses, wagons and buggies. Our closest doctor was Dr. Stewart of Naicam. Our hospital would be either Watson or Melfort.

In 1942 Carl moved his family to Sheriddon, Manitoba, were he worked in the mine for three and a half years, returning to the farm in 1945. He bought grain after that for the Lake of the Woods in Lac Vert for three years.

In 1947 Carl bought the farm of Charlie Brigham and lived there until he retired to Naicam. When Carl was farming, he was known for his horse trading. He also had a threshing outfit and threshed for many neighbors in the surrounding district.

After Carl and Yvonne sold their land in 1957 they worked for Ramsey and Bird Construction for the summer months. They then purchased the house of Charlie Brigham in Naicam (now the Vernon Kellington home).

Carl did a lot of plumbing when the sewer and water came in Naicam. In 1962 he worked for the Department of Highways near Saskatoon while Yvonne cooked for the Saskatchewan Power near Squaw Rapids. In the fall of 1962 Carl and Yvonne took a job up north, at Sandy Bay, Saskatchewan, where Carl was maintenance man and Yvonne housekeeper. They stayed there until the fall of 1965 when they returned to Naicam. They then sold their house to Olaf Olson and purchased the house of Mildred Roth, now the Ernie Norton home. They lived there a year before going to work in 1967 for Botkins Construction of Regina, where Carl and Yvonne cooked for the next six years, spending their winters in Naicam. In 1971 they sold their house to Mr. And Mrs. Norton and lived in Hillcrest for the winter until we bought the Martin Ness house in 1970, where Yvonne still lives. Carl passed away in September, 1979

The family consists of the four children. Ken McGillivray is District Operator for the Saskatchewan Power at Churchbridge, Saskatchewan. He married Elsie Hart to of Endeavour. They have five children.
